"As the world's fastest growing economy, India is firing on all cylinders and has become attractive to foreign investors," says Asdhir who has just returned from a business trip to India.

"Since assuming office last May, Modi has been instrumental in influencing significant investments from several major countries, among them the US, Japan, China and France. Canada is expected to follow suit," he says.

He says the new institutional and regulatory reforms coupled with a strong currency will spell boon for India in the coming years.

Pointing to the huge success of Excel India Fund as an indication of Canadian investors' huge interest in India, he says, "We anticipate that Prime Minister Modi's visit will raise awareness of India as one of the best investment destinations."

According to Asdhir, India's large highly educated labor force, and a growing, upwardly mobile middle class increase "its desirability as an investment destination".

The Excel India Fund is managed by Birla Sun Life Asset Management Company Limited in India.
